RIVERSIDE – California Baptist University’s online programs have earned the No. 13 spot in the 2013 Best Online Bachelor’s Degree Programs for Veterans rankings by U.S. News & World Report. 

For the first time, CBU Online was also ranked 28th for CBU Online’s graduate business program and 34th for CBU Online’s graduate education degree.

CBU entered the online education market in the spring of 2010 with programs offered by the university’s Division of Online and Professional Studies. CBU now offers 158 majors/concentrations and 41 master’s degrees and serves more than 3,100 students online throughout the United States.

To help veterans choose a quality online program, U.S. News has launched its annual rankings of the Best Online Programs for Veterans, according to its website. All of the ranked programs belong to institutions that are certified for the G.I. Bill and participate in the Yellow Ribbon Program, two federal initiatives that help veterans reduce the cost of school.
